Hey fellas,
I am looking into buying a new fork for my ride. I want to get into more DH racing, but my current fork just doesn't make the cut. I currently ride a Haro X2, which has been working out pretty good for me, but I want to get a dual crown fork up front. Any suggestions on forks, or would I be better off buying a completely new set up? I would really like to keep my same bike if possible. Thanks for your help!

What year is your bike, what is the current fork, and what is your budget?
My bike is a 2002, and it currently has a marzocchi EXR comp on the front. (yes, I know, its sad.) My budget is about 500 dollars, and I wouldn't mind buying a used fork if I could get a nice one. Thanks for your reply.

You can try a o3 or o4 Marzocchi Junior T. It's a cheap and reliable DC. You can get one used for less than 300 on eBay. 7 inches of travel, supar stiff. Adjustable rebound. *shrug* It's a nice entry level DC. If you can find a deal, I really like the Manitou Sherman Sliders. The Stance Kingpin (or whatever the hell it's called) is alright, but I'm not real fond of it. It might just be that I was riding one when it was brand new and hadn't been broken in yet. If you can find a good deal on a o3 or newer Super T, that's also a great fork. Boxxers suck, stay away from those. Plastic internals that blow to bits on hard impacts.
